Pastor Colbert SAINT LOUIS helped start a small church in the Thomassin 32 area in the mountains above Port-au-Prince. At the time, he was working with an American pastor, Brandon Jordan, and they started this church to meet the needs of the people in this area. Pastor Jordan has since returned to the States to live, but Pastor Saint-Louis has continued to lead the church and to watch it grow.
They wanted a church that was open to everyone. The church wanted people to come and know that itdid not matter what clothes you wore or if you could afford new shoes. They wanted people to come as they are and they wanted to share the word of God with everyone they met. With this in mind, Pastors JORDAN and SAINT LOUIS planted the church L’Eglise d’Espoir (Church of Hope). Today, the church is located under a huge circus tent in the yard of an old block factory. They have 150 to 200 people who come weekly to hear the word of God. They have a choir and a band made up of people out of the congregation. There are many children who come to the church and even some from local orphanages. Children’s church is an important part of their church program.
Pastor SAINT LOUIS and his wife, Yvonette, are working hard to build the church and reach the community. They desperately need to pay their rent for 2016. The rent is $5500 USD and is due now. Haiti is a poor country and the congregation is unable to give enough to pay the rent. Can you please help the congregation at L’Eglise d’Espoir pay their rent and continue preaching the Word of God to the people of Haiti?
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Mat 28:19 - 20
Update: The landlord is threatening to evict the church if their rent is not paid. It was due the 1st of January. Please pray about it and if you feel God leading you to help the Church of Hope, then send a donation today!
